the dimensions. san francisco's variety of systems for granting approval for temporary events which led to the office working on the temporary events policies with varied departments. the america's cup, it's people's transportation plan and as we talked about an outgrowth of that was the improvements on jefferson street and of course planning department parklets and i should not say this, but cycle tracks in jefferson. go, state park. so it's an impressive body of work. and we really appreciate you putting that public time in. i know it's a lot of work to keep doing this every month and to try to get people to come to the meeting. i think we made some really good headway through this process. so, council, you are going to have to pick a new chairperson for this committee. >> that will be a challenge, definitely. >> thank you very much for that, john paul. one of the best things about this role is the opportunity to work with john paul and carla before you, susan, there's really some talented, dedicated people who are not just dedicated but really good at what you guys do. you are
? in the last 10 years. as it really made any citizen's life better? san francisco was renowned for its public transportation for years which had traffic calming, which had character and culture. the public transportation system in this city is to die for. i was hit by a muni bus, rear ended coming back from a yoga class. now my arms are paralyzed. do you think the city and county of san francisco compensated me for that accident? no. they didn't. ripped me off. that's what they're doing to every citizen in this city with government transportation. can't get from one end of the city to the next without hitting a traffic jam. the drivers that drive these vehicles, way undertrained. shouldn't even be driving most of them. it's all a big compromise. if you can't see that, you're blind, numb or dead. san francisco's public transportation is a blight. hardly anybody in this city is happy with it. but you seem to think that you can throw it on us at the expense of our culture and wave life just because you think that we need it that way. nobody in this city wants that type of public transportation.

typical because it is a riskier business. but a lot of people in san francisco see that as an opportunity for them as well. we also partner with the golden gate restaurant association to help people understand how to do financing for restaurants. a lot of what we do is helping small businesses get access to credit. the sba loan program covers a range of small loans down to $25,000 and large loans up to $5 million, so it is a very wide range. can be used for a variety of uses -- debt refinancing, building acquisition, working capital, so it can be used for a wide range of things from a small business point of view. as you heard, we do guarantees for about 90 or 100 banks in the country -- or in the bay area. about 3000 nationwide. there is a lot of lenders that do some sba lending. first thing you want to do is deal with the bank. if they are not able to make the loan by themselves, then go to our website, which is www. sba.gov, and look for the local page to see the local san francisco financing sources. but before you do that, the takeaway message here is that before you go to a bank, ma
ated. thank you. >> commissioners, ray heart, director of san francisco open government. i do read these reports. i read every one of them, front to back and i go back and make notes on them and everything else because i really do want to come here and make meaningful comment. for example, category number two investigation enforcement programs number of complaints what does that tell us? how long have those complaints been sitting? i know for a fact that the 9 for the sunshine ordinance task force have been sitting there for god knows how long. so basically, i could have to... i don't think that it is unfair to assume that some of these other complaints may just be sitting in someone's desk aging and eventually someone will get around to it and someone will put it up. these really are meanless statistics. and nine people filed a complaint, and how many were referred from sunshine? how many of you heard, well, we know that. one. gomez, where did that go? nowhere. because the mayor only wants to use you if it suits his political ends. i told you that before. he hung you out to dry, h
volunteered on a number of different conditions, including the san francisco building inspection commission, the former president of that commission, but i think most importantly he has been an incredible part of our workforce development commission because that is exactly what our kids are looking for when they graduate and complete their city college. it is not just about a degree. it is about whether that degree leads to full employment. that is what people are looking for. this is what rodrigo stands out in my mind amongst all the people that we had a chance to take a look at. he has been involved as a pro bono structural engineer. his firm is a structural engineering firm, but he has been a part of many of our local nonprofits to have their projects successful in the past 20 years. i know rodrigo is a stronger performer. he is an advocate on behalf of students and he is committed to our city college and it will not lose its accreditation with rodrigo's help. [applause] for these reasons, i am presenting to you, rodrigo, as a great asset to our city college, and i want to thank him for

is conrad delrusario from economic crimes office in san francisco, currently overseeing many units. a particular one is a real estate fraud, as well as mortgage grant. we previously had mortgage and investment grant funded by the federal government that had just recently expired. this is grant presented by the attorney general's office as a result of a settlement with countrywide loan or countrywide bank several months ago, if not a year ago. the grant is specifically targeted toward assisting our office in developing and maintaining specialized prosecutors and investigators -- sorry, singular. specialized prosecutor and investigator in area of dealing with mortgage fraud and associated type crimes. san francisco is a city that is very rich area for purposes of these type of frauds and scams to occur. notably the landscape encompasses people that own a lot of property or people that own property that's real estate value have appreciated. there's a lot of equity and people that purchase during the housing market so there are people at risk of foreclosure. this makes a rich environme
